Extra Myth 2. Organic Foods Are Better For You
Some people may tell you that eating organic foods is better for you compared to regular food products. Not only is this not actually true, but they cost more at the same time. What a rip-off, right? Why are they not really much better, you might ask? People say that they are free of pesticides unlike other food but this is a lie, as many still use them. To count as organic, farmers must only use chemicals from which they are naturally derived.
That opens up a huge list of potential chemicals. On top of that, they can even be worse for the environment than synthetic counterparts. Of course, any chemical usage used in organic or non-organic foods is so low that they won’t harm you. There have been a little over 98,000 studies done on organic foods that prove there are no actual nutritional benefits compared to non-organic foods.
